Sir Terry congratulates Chris

Sir Terry Wogan returned to the Radio 2 Breakfast show on Monday morning to announce the total raised for Children in Need.

He congratulated Chris on his RAJAR figures, joking that he should have left earlier as he was clearly "putting 1 million listeners off!".

The total amount for BBC Children in Need's was a record breaking total of £39million, Sir Terry announced whilst on the phone from Gascony.

He also congratulated Chris Evans's personal total of £530,823, continuing to praise what he deemed as "the people's charity".

In the recent audience figures, an extra million listeners have registered they listen to the show since Sir Terry left. Chris celebrated by [link=]buying[/link] a new car – a £12m Ferrari.

David Ramsden, Chief Executive of BBC Children in Need, says: "Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters we are thrilled to announce that we have raised a record amount of money which will make a real difference to young lives right across the UK."
